Making more use of smartphone apps to keep you on the go

Sometimes we need to make more use of technology to help make our lives more simple. Smartphones now have the capability of having apps that can help us keep up to date with TV, keep track of our fitness levels and goals and even work on the go. Working, in the blogging world anyway, is much simpler with social media apps like Facebook and Youtube. Downloading apps like Cinema Box could mean that you can be multitasking and be doing one thing while keeping track of the latest film or boxset you have wanted to watch.

Planning is critical so get yourself organized with a planner or wall chart

Life can’t keep moving when you are busy and have a full schedule without careful planning and consideration in advance. This means doing things like meal planning and ensuring your family is fed, right through to organizing when those bills need to be paid or those deadlines need to be met. There can be a time where you have so many plates spinning that if one falls, they all will. So get yourself a decent planner, use your phone for a digital diary or even get a wall chart to help you keep your days and weeks in check. It can be quite therapeutic to take a few moments to plan out your week and feel satisfied with what you are about to achieve.

Learning to let things go to keep your mind clear

Being busy means that your mind can often get cluttered with all sorts of thoughts about what you are doing, what you have to do and everything in between. It can often be one of the most exhausting things about it. It can be difficult at times, but there are often points in your way where you just have to let things go. This can be hard for someone who is a bit of a perfectionist, I admit. But letting go keeps your mind clean and on the job in hand. Remember those spinning plates and not letting one fall? Your mind has much to do with that.

Always find the fun to help you through the tough times

Finally, having a smile on your face is crucial to get through the day and can help you overcome some of the most toughest of times. Being busy will often present itself with its fair share of problems, but laughing your way through it and smiling will keep you going and can turn what was a tough situation into something fun.

I hope these tips help you keep your life moving when you feel like you have no time at all.
